High-Beta Index Clinging to Support Level

The NASDAQ 100 (QQQQ) just can’t rally off what seems to be a strong support level at $47.00. While the index is firmly in a neutral state (so there isn’t a true bullish or bearish edge). We have been trading in a fairly tight range over the last two trading days so I would expect to see something give very soon. A push to the downside could trigger a few signals, but only if we can get an oversold reading. It has been quite some time since every index and sector ETF I follow for the options strategies have held in a neutral state. In the past when this type of event occurs (or should I say non-event) a sharp move typically follows.  Until then, as always, I will be patiently waiting on the sidelines for a signal to occur in one of our options strategies.

Have a wonderful night!
